About project

Evk is a simple lossy video codec. Project aims at developing a clean and functional implementation of basic algorithms used in video compression together with a simple bitstream. Therefore it's performance doesn't match the performance of other popular video codecs as Xvid, x264, DivX etc. On the other side, it's not so complex (and it's reasonably fast), therefore should its code be more understandable for less experienced programmers. Next target is to create a detailed documentation together with tutorial about video compression.
